Amazon Echo Voice Commands Now Work On Wink-Compatible Smart Home Devices

The Echo is Amazon's little smart tube that perks up whenever you say "Alexa" and proceeds to do whatever you say. Well, as long as what you say is something it has the capability to do. If you have a house filled with Wink-compatible products, that list now includes telling Echo to take control of your home.

Try, "Alexa, turn off the fan" or "Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights." Then watch as you never burn calories getting up to flip switches yourself.

The updated version of Glass is known as the Enterprise Edition. Goodbye, explorers. Hello, surgeons and other important people who are using these intriguing glasses to do something other than attract attention.

Do you like Halo? I mean really like Halo, like you've got a little light-up Cortana on your desk and you actually know the names of the various rainbow color versions of the Master Chief? Can you write me a 20-page essay on the leadup to and fallout from the battle of Reach?

[Deal Alert] Amazon Is Offering The Fire Phone For Only $160 Today (Full Year Of Prime Included), Perfect For Next Week's Prime Day Sale

On July 15th, Amazon is holding a big Prime Day sale that it says will offer more deals than Black Friday. You will also get to do without the lines, risk of being trampled, and having to get up from the Thanksgiving dinner table a mere five minutes after sitting down.

The only catch is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member. That luxury costs a recurring $100 fee. But thanks to today's Goldbox Deal of the Day, you can get a full year of Prime along with an Amazon Fire Phone for $160. That's $20 less than the already low contract-free price it's going for these days.

Herocraft's FootLOL Mixes Soccer, Tower Defense, Cannons, Cows, Aliens, Bombers, And Anything Else They Can Cram Into A Mobile Game

Soccer games and tower defense games seem to have reached their design peak - while you see a new idea every once in a while, both genres are relatively static. That's probably what makes FootLOL so interesting: it mixes both genres, and a bunch of other random insanity, to make something wholly unique. And also insane. Just have a gander at the trailer below and see if you can scrape together the few bits of coherence in the gameplay.

FootLOL is basically the over-the-top sports game, a la NBA Street or Mario Super Strikers, taken to its most unbelievable conclusion. You control your team and try to score goals in the conventional way, but you also get crazy semi-permanent cannons and turrets, stampeding herds of cattle, alien abductions, and a host of other things that are slightly outside of the rules of soccer to employ on both offense and defense.
